And here is the cover!
I've been learning about how to make book covers and using Photoshop to edit and recolor objects and various things. And, oh my gosh, I am so delighted that I designed this cover myself! It took a long time, but I learned so much while doing this project. I feel like I could teach a class on it, lol.
Four short stories of romance between Bazin and Miaxa, two alien beings from the planet Beryll. Finding themselves on a previously unknown planet, Earth, they grow fond of a human family. Cultural misunderstandings are a constant, the day-in-the-life misadventures of Bazin and Miaxa and their human friends.
Modeled after "Life in Pieces," the stories inside follow the daily lives of the Maddox family with their out of this world residents.
Aliens in the Barn:
--There’s a mechanical extraterrestrial living in Alex’s barn, but what will happen if the alien’s wife arrives? Wait, Bazin’s married?
Scared to Death:
--Beth has been married to Alex for over a year and he still can't make it home for dinner. Why does he and his coworker friend spend so much time working on that truck in the barn?
The Skellyd Hunters:
--With a core-bonded strength few understand, Bazin and Miaxa are Beryll's finest warriors. Sometimes they go a little too far and Andler is left with the consequences, for better or worse.
Meet Douglas Fir:
--Being human isn't easy with robotic alien residents misunderstanding the simple stuff. Alex can't imagine his family life without Bazin and Miaxa, however. Time to have them over for Christmas.
